DES MOINES (AP)--Powerball jackpot ticket worth $232 million was sold in the South Dakota town of Winner.
State lottery officials say the owner has yet to come forward but they plan to hold a news conference Thursday morning in Pierre (PEER) to offer details.
They say it's the ninth-largest Powerball jackpot ever.
Out of the millions of tickets sold for Wednesday night's drawing, only one matched all six winning numbers: five, six, twelve, 16 and 21. The Powerball was seven.
A dozen players came close to the big money by matching five numbers. They're worth at least $200,000 and were sold in Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Minnesota, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Wisconsin.
Powerball is played in 30 states, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
